We had a fantastic day on our tour. The tour guide Luis was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable and also very friendly. The lunch buffet was delicious too. We couldn't ask for a better day.

The tour itself was ok for the price. What bothered me a little was that you should buy something at almost every stop and that our bus looked a bit unsafe.

Very well organized, amazing local guide and very friendly. The places are just beautiful. I advise 100%
